Small Business Saturday....Support your local Scrapbook stores!

I wanted to take a moment and challenge all my followers to take part in the national event "Small Business Saturday" on November 26th. Just what is this event? well in a nut shell; First there was Black Friday, then Cyber Monday. Now, there's the 2nd annual Small Business Saturday, the day people support small businesses. Pledge to Shop Small on Nov 26th. If millions of Americans shop small, it will be huge. So how can we as scrapbookers and paper crafters do our part? By supporting our local scrapbook stores! So here is what I would like everyone to do leave a comment here and tell us about a local scrapbook store you support give the address if you can this will help everyone get to know about shops in their areas...or if they are travling to spend the holidays else where they know about great shops to visit.
What do you get for leaving this info? The knowledge that you helped out your local stores, plus I will draw one name who will win an exclusive holiday ephemera sheet!
So here are my shout outs to my favorite local stores
